the landlord organizations, the san francisco apartment association, with the mission sro collaborative which was the major impetus with other tenant organizations in supporting this to create stronger public health policies and to limit second hand smoke in multi unit buildings. the hazards as we said before of second hand smoke is well documented. there's no safe exposure level, it's cancer-causing, it's toxic, it leads to thousands and thousands of deaths each year and by limiting access to second hand smoke, it's protecting people's health. also, when people live in close proximity to units where there are smokers in apartment buildings or multi unit buildings, they are in danger of the smoke seeping into or kind of coming into their units or common areas as well and this can result in prospective tenants really being exposed to hazardous air in their buildings. i think this is an important measure, too, that will really help prospective tenants finding out more where they may be exposed to second hand smoke but it's usually after they sign a lease right now where people find this out. s

association's view changes made to the 1986 law? >> guest: as the proposed changes made their way up committee, there is discussion going forward and a lot of acknowledgment and parts of the law that needs to be tweaked with further input to take one person accused into account. these changes that have been proposed represent a very fundamental change in how these types of stored communications are accessed by law enforcement. mr. nojeim is correct and there is a distinction between content that is fresher than 180 days in content older than 180 days. the proposed amendments to several things. one, for content older than 180 days it increases the legal standard by which law enforcement can obtain the actual content, raising it from a standard of reasonableness to a standard of probable cause and having a search warrant be required to obtain the data from which the form of judicial intervention because a search warrant needs to be signed up by a judge. it also creates a presumption of disclosure to the individual whose records have been taken, whereas ordinarily with search warrants is a presum

associated with that. that's something we don't want to see. especially in the last few years, i think san francisco, we have really powered through some rough years economically. i hear with many of my merchants on sirfing street here who stuck with the neighborhood, stuck with this community and have gone through tough economic times and weathered it with us. we just want to make sure that we do everything we can as a city to support them. and, so, this issue about a-d-a com playboytionv fa public libraritionv is something that been going on for quite sometime. people say in san francisco how big is this problem? we know that since 2005 there are at least 300 lawsuits that have happened about a-d-a on a-d-a compliance issues in the city and county of san francisco. this is not insignificant for a city our size. and we know that these are things that we have to address. since that time with mayor lee who has actually done a number of things, we've worked with the bar association to make sure that we have legal advice that can be given to our merchants on a very cost-effective basis. we've

unanimous consent to place in the record a letter from the mortgage bankers association. the presiding officer: without objection. mrs. boxer: a letter from -- it looks to me like two or three dozen other housing organizations smed i would ask to put that in as well. the presiding officer: without objection. mrs. boxer: and i would like to read from a letter that we received -- actually, the majority and minority leaders got a letter from the mortgage bankers association, the national association of home build,and the national association of realtors. so these are the business people, and this is what they said about her.

and events and trajectories associated with the legal abolition of slavery in which its limitations are central and fundamental to what is happening in our own times. in this paper, i want to think about two things -- the first is, i want to think about how we can define and conceptualize slavery as a category, and in thinking about that, i am particularly interested in how we deal with this for a recurring ambiguity which arises at points of intersection between the slavery and what i want to describe as other forms of human bondage. the problem should be familiar to most of us. slavery has been legally abolished, yet we still have a bunch of problems that invite comparison to what we think about in terms of historical slavery. there is this impulse or instant that these are in some way related or connected or associated. at the same time, we have a lot of ambiguity surrounding this. in this presentation, i want to do a couple of things. the first thing i want to do is lay out a set of ideas and frameworks for how we might think about the problems associated with defining slavery a
of the san francisco fleet week association and what a great fleet week we're going to have for 2012. thank you. this is the second time we've had the uss macon islands and i want to thank captain pringle and his entire crew. what a great ship and what a great crew. they turned this swear hanger deck around all right night and turned it into a conference room and it looks absolutely beautiful. thank you, captain, and your entire crew. i'm going to make this short because we're already running a little bit behind schedule, but san francisco fleet week for the third year is organized with i object credible participation from city, civilian agencies from all around the region and all of us our fabulous united states military, the coast guard has been fabulous in providing assets to protect everybody out on the bay. it is one heck of a logistics program to get this whole program started and here we are the culmination of nearly a year of planning. we've had exercises, we've had lots of meetings down in san francisco up at the marines memorial, this is a fabulous program, we had a great medi
of smoking optional units. again i want to thank the tenant organizations and apartment association for their leadership but especially aliana caruco from the department of public health and desiree for drafting the ordinance. with that, i'd like to ask aliana caruco to make a public presentation. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is aliana caruca, i'm with the department of public health and i'm tobacco free director so i'm representing the department of public health today. this policy would inform prospective tenants of which units have been designated as smoking optional. supervisor mar, you've already basically explained what the ordinance would require and i would just like to add that over the years as the public has become much more educated and aware of the dangers of second hand smoke we've been getting a lot more calls with tenant complaints about smoking and in particular we've seen a lot of people who have called like i remember we got a call from a mother with a brand new infant, seniors with lots of chronic diseases, people with hiv, people with cancer and heart
to treatment of mental illness and to increase public awareness to reduce the stigma associated with seeking help. >> all the issues with access to health care generally, one of the most difficult things to get access to is competent mental health care when you need it. first of all, there's a stigma to admitting you have enough of a problem that you need to see somebody. we have to get over this stigma. >> it's one step toward getting more people the help they need and possibly preventing more innocent lives from being lost. >> within hours of knowing the identity of the newtown shooter, the news media also began reporting that 20-year-old adam lanza suffered from asperger's. this is a form of autism. experts say there is no evidence of links between autism and violent rampages. we have more from reporter jim a roan i, syracuse station wcny. >> i boys of baldwinsville are checking in with their doctor. his 15-year-old twin brother zachary has autism. they share their observations of the last week of school before the holidays at syracuse university. >> i think the biggest thing of dealing w
agents' association. what is your view in the fbi association's view of the changes made to the 1986 law? >> as they made their way out of committee, and there is a lot of discussion going forward an acknowledgement that there are parts of the law that still need to be required for further refinement. these changes that have been proposed represent a very fundamental change in how these types of stored communications are accessed by law enforcement. there is a direct distinction between content that is fresher than 180 days in content that is older than 180 days. the proposed amendments do several things. for content that is older than 180 days, it increases the legal standard by which law enforcement can obtain the actual content, raising it from the standard of reasonableness to a standard of probable cause. a search warrant needs to be signed on by a judge. it also creates a presumption of disclosure. are nearly was search warrants there is a resumption of delay. we are concerned with some of the practical aspects and let it means to us in our daily work. when congress passed the admi
attorney, the magazine from the bar association, and the cover of the magazine is "domestic violence, not a cookie cutter approach" and they interviewed two attorneys and i know both but no prosecution interviewed, no police department involved in the interview, and it's essentially taking us back 10 steps. all of the hard work put in by the da's office and this article i was bothered by it and i think there should be response to the article and i think tonight is the first response and i think we are disturbed and it's like the knob hill gazette for lawyers but this was a bad article. >> thank you commissioner mazzucco. i would like to introduce nancy rodriquez and if you could say a little bit about yourself. >> i spend most of my days doing government relations consulting and served as government affairs for gavin noose som when he was mayor. i served on the commission for a year and a half. it's an incredible honor because i have spent time working on womens' issues in the womens' community and i also spend time working closely with the jewish community relations council whi
